Historical shrinkage enables contact center managers and administrators to view the duration of planned and actual non-interacting time in the past and present. The process aggregates historical adherence and schedule data to compare both planned and actual activities that result in being away from agent interacting time. The reported data helps you to refine staffing requirements and generate schedules using platform-based data and insights. Consider the historical shrinkage view as a reporting view that tracks the scheduled time and the actual time recorded in agent schedules.
